THE COMMEMORATIVE ART PRINT FOR THE MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST MARATHON

ABOUT THE PRINT

The 2017 commemorative art print, which embodies the Coastal Running Fest weekend experience, was created by Anna Fallon-Pierce, the winner of this year’s contest. We engaged the artistic community on the coast by asking them to share their concept of running along the coast.The goal of the serigraph art print is to capture a shared passion of those connected to our state as we blend healthy living into our rich lifestyle. This print is for those who appreciate a healthy Louisiana lifestyle.

Specifications: A 28”(w) x 22”(t) serigraph/silkscreened in (8) eight ultra violet permanent colors with the image coated with a UV clear that protects from fading – art that will last for centuries. Printed on Mohawk Superfine, ph-neutral, acid-free archival paper that is by Crescent Decal.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Anna Fallon-Pierce
Art has been part of my whole life, sometimes more in the forefront than others, but always present. I especially love colored pencil, water color, and collage. I was excited and honored when I found out my art was selected for this year’s art print!

My background is as a biologist and environmental scientist so I like to portray plants and animals with an eye towards detail and accuracy. I live locally and drive, run, and bike along the racecourse all the time. I wanted to express the energy of running and also beauty of the coast in this art.

I am the mother of four and am in the enviable positon of having a child in college, high school, middle school, and elementary! I homeschool the two younger kids and teach co-op classes in all things science and occasionally art. I am also training for my first marathon with sights set on a race for early next year. I’ve had a very busy year and have completed a half marathon, Ragnar Tennessee (a 12 person relay race that covered roughly 200 miles), and a sprint triathlon.
